David Willard recently reached a very rare milestone – 50 years of continued employment at one institution – Cape Cod Five. David started his career with the Bank in 1967 as a Branch Manager working out of the Orleans branch. During his banking career, he held many positions  but is best known for his role over nearly three decades as the Bank’s Director of Community Relations. After those many years of great contributions to the Bank and the communities it serves, Mr. Willard has announced his retirement.

“It has been my great privilege and honor to work for an institution that values its relationship with its customer and is deeply committed to the community,” shared David Willard.

At the Bank’s annual Community Commitment meeting, the program will include a tribute to Mr. Willard, highlighting his many years of service to the Bank. The meeting will be attended by the Bank’s Corporators, Officers and members of the nonprofit community who are supported through Cape Cod Five’s philanthropy.

“David’s role in assisting the Bank in the execution of its Community Commitment has been invaluable. His contributions to the nonprofit community have been vast and his consistent good cheer and positive outlook have made him a great asset to our organization,” said Dorothy A. Savarese, President and CEO of Cape Cod Five.

Mr. Willard will continue his current duties through the balance of 2017.
